Arthritis

Arthritis is associated with increased mortality due to cardiovascular disease. It affects approximately 2-3 times more often women than men. It is largely due to incapacity for work. It is associated with chronic pain, stiffness and increased mortality. It often has lasting consequences, and patients have a reduced ability to perform some routine activities, thereby reducing their quality of life. The root cause of the disease is not yet known.
Arthritis belongs to a group of autoimmune diseases, which means that its underlying cause lies in an impaired immune system. Of the joints, the wrists and small joints on the hands and feet are most commonly affected. Joints are damaged at two levels. First, the synovial membrane becomes thickened and fluid is excreted into the joint due to inflammation. Inflammation typically results in pain, swelling and stiffness of the joint and results in reduced mobility. If not treated, it leads to joint destruction. Arthritis is an incurable disease so far, because the goal of treatment is to achieve remission or low activity of the disease. The longer after diagnosis they delay the start of treatment, the worse results are achieved during therapy.
